Either is fine, even if you test positive you still have to wait till 12 weeks to get a WB. But you would get an ELISA from a Dr 1st.
Home tests have a higher false positive rate, while they are good if you do test positive it does not mean you are positive.
What was your risk?
What is the false positive rate for a home test vs. the ELISA one would get from the doctor? I was under the impression that the Oraquick test was used at clinics too.
They are and there is no hard and fast numbers in terms of false positives.
Again, what was your risk?
Mutual masturbation. Not a real risk, but want to be checked anyway. I may have gotten some vaginal fluids on my penis.
1 in 12 false positives
1 in 5000 false negatives
No risk, no need to test. So if you get a positive result you know it's a false positive.
Those #'s are estimates.
